We looked at a rare G L Stiles guitar back in March - but look - here's a whole bunch of them! Guitarz reader Adam Tober sent me this photo of his collection of G L Stiles guitars as recently featured at Deke Dickerson's Guitar Geek Festival 2010 (see also here).
Two of the scroll-bodied guitars and a similar bass are currently being offered for sale as a single lot on eBay right now. Way to get yourself an instant collection!
For those of you who are not aware of the G L Stiles brand, I shall shamelessly quote from the eBay listing: "West Virginia native Gilbert Lee Stiles began building guitars in 1961, and his small Hialeah, Florida music store quickly became the center of the budding South Florida teenage garage rock and surf scene. Eventually Stiles guitars could be seen on stage with the likes of Ernest Tubb, Brenda Lee and the Casuals, NRBQ's Steve Ferguson, and Conway Twitty."
Thanks to Adam for sharing with us!
